Chance of Being Prescribed Opioids for a Minor Injury Differs Dramatically by Where You Live

Perelman School of Medicine at the University of Pennsylvania

Patients who sought care for a sprained ankle in states that were found to be "high prescribers" of opioids were approximately three times more likely to receive a prescription for the drugs than those treated in "low-prescribing" states, according to new research. Additional results of the study show that patients who received prescriptions for long courses of the drugs (e.g. more than 30 tablets of oxycodone 5 mg) were five times more likely to fill additional opioid prescriptions over the next 6 months than those who received just a few days' supply (e.g. 10 tablets of less).

The Type and Number of Drinker-related Harms Differ by Proximity and Gender

Research Society on Alcoholism

While many people consider drinking to be a pleasurable activity at home or in social venues with friends, it can result in harm to the user and to others who are affected by the user’s drinking. These harms can include inter-personal violence, fetal alcohol spectrum disorders (FASDs), emotional neglect, and social embarrassment, which can adversely affect close relationships, such as with family, and extended relationships, such as with friends, co-workers, and more distant relatives. This study analyzed the impact of having close- and extended-proximity relationships with a harmful drinker among men and women in 10 countries.
